romney, this election season, there are now 47 million people on food stamps. that's an increase of 14.7 million people or 46% since obama took office, and those people buy the smaller units at dollar general. say what you want about the president, the increase in food stamps is a huge tail wind for dollar general. and it's natural they would have some major stock-up business ahead of this storm. however, hurricane sandy is just icing on the cake for dollar general. i can't do any trades because they're too flawed but this investment, i like. i would be telling you to make this investment without the food stamp stock-up business from the storm. why am i such a big fan of this one? dollar general is the best of the dollar steers. best management, it's been able to deliver consistent double-digit earnings growth for the last several years. second, there's been trouble in the dollar store space recently. i think this industry is still a terrific fit for the times we're in. it ain't no boom here. an environment of high unemployment, slow wage growth, expensive gas prices, you better believ

to unleash. so i think the market psychologically with like to see a romney win, but even if it's obama, we can still make a plan. and that's the biggest problem. >> what happens if we don't find out the outcome of the election by wednesday morning? >> that's the talk of the town right now. downstairs everybody's talking that is the biggest disaster because if he with have that uncertainty continue -- i don't think it would go as lon at figure cal cliphysical kal clif that's the irs volumes have been low because we ecause there is no etting plan going forward. >> scott, we'll leave it there, but thanking for your perspective. we'll see you soon. the question on our minds here this morning, to run or not to run. that is our question. the big controversy over mayor bloomberg's decision to push forward with the marathon. one topic of outrage to touch on in chairs this morning. smart comes with 8 airbags, 3 a crash management system and the world's only tridion safety cell which can withstand over three and a half tons. small in size. big on safety. but don't just listen to me. listen to these

republican in big elections. >> host: snapshot of pennsylvania, it's 20 electoral votes. back in 2008 barack obama winning by ten percentage points. unemployment in the state essentially mirroring what we have nation wild, 8.2% -- nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting an awful lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes. what is so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground than pennsylvania at least at the moment? >> guest: yeah. yeah, well, the essential difference is that ohio has a good many be more sort of moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats have done well is they've captured the suburbs of our state in these last, in the presidential elections in recent years, and that's been the defining difference. you've got that big swath of in the middle of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area there. obviously, with the cleveland area up in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and the

important election of our lifetime. people feel that way because the one that you're in. i do think that obama's victory could create a major ideological shift in the country. and obama's losing could have something to do with where we were a decade ago. it can be very unique and very promising. we could be doing some major advancement that would be great for the environment. obviously, the youth vote is very critical. it is also very unusual that people care so much. [inaudible] so you are lucky and blessed to be listening to and to be part of this election. >> tim? >> though, i wanted people to step up a little bit. we talked about fiscally conservative people, and i would like to see some socially liberal liberals. we didn't get into the juggler or civil liberties were a bunch of other things. and i would like to see something from the left. as far as i can see, we have gone butkus on all those issues. every couple of years, there is a big debate that are held in some false. a connection between libertarians and conservatives, is coming to an end? my friend, jonah goldberg, says

a supply store -- surprise or two on election night. what do you look for? >> pennsylvania is a state that we did not look at as competitive. bob casey was caught sleeping. he did not take this race seriously. i think obama still has a narrow edge. i think casey will pull this out. democrats have had to go in and help him. what we are looking for, if scott brown does not pull it out in massachusetts early on, and tim kaine slightly has an edge in virginia, it becomes difficult for republicans. republicans would be happy for a win at 3. democrats have good candidates. even if they fall short in places like arizona and north dakota, they have made these republicans spend money. >> thank you very much. >> now from maine, a debate among candidates for the senate seat. this hourlong debate is brought to us by wmtw tv in portland, maine. >> in the next hour, you will hear from six candidates who want to represent the maine in the senate. i want to give you a quick word about our format tonight. the questions come from our editorial board and viewers and e-mails. we want to hear from you. >>

seems to have died out. it's left him in a very competitive position. he could win the election. but he may need a little bit of push by the end. and then the other thing that people talk about is the idea that president obama can showrd shal leadership and he's helping people, using fema and other tools of the administration. i'm kind of skeptical of that because i think people understand that that's a president's job. i don't see the president getting much mileage out of that. but who knows. >> this is a random question. if the election were held tomorrow, would they ever cancel or delay the actual election itself due to weather,s that that ever happened? >> not to my knowledge. i think it would be very, very difficult to do. but, you know, stranger things have happened. i'm not aware that that's ever happened. i mean, it certainly happened in particular jurisdictions. you remember in 9/11, they moved the mayoral election in new york city. so certainly there's press department for in the catastrophic circumstance moving the date, but i've never seen that in a presidential election and
